´I Hate Everyone In the White House´
Trump Seethes As Advisers Fear
the President is Unraveling

Vanity Fair, by Gabriel Sherman

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/12/2017 6:43:31 AM

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

Turbo-liberal ´news´, check, Alleged reliable and unnamed sources, check. Anti-Trump, check. Meets all criteria for another fake news story.

I´d be ´unraveling´ too if I was used to hard work with accomplishments and was now in the kabuki dance of political do nothing that is somehow supposed to resemble something getting done.

Consider the source. I don´t believe that people who have been with the President for a long time would divulge anything because they know that there is a concentrated effort to remove him from the Presidency. The President has many who are loyal to him and they know what he is facing. This is just more falsehood being peddled as truth. Anything to harm the President and his agenda. He is their number one threat because he understands exactly that the country is in severe crisis created by the political class and media they want nothing done to fix it. Their corruption and theft of America´s wealth depends on it. God help him. He is fighting an enormous battle against all odds and there are people willing to do ANYTHING to see that he is stopped by any means possible. If you believe in the power of prayer, now is the time. It has never been more important.

Yes #4 -consider the source-the magazine that does the most ´investigation´ stories-somehow forgot to go after the big story of the day- Harvey Weinstein. Could it be that the biggest after Oscar party is theirs? I would think so-they knew but were not going to mess with the gold mine from Hollywood that gives them their biggest issues each year. So what a great time to take the heat off and go for Trump.
Sad for me is how many will believe it. They might as well be living in Europe as they only pay attention to the far left side of anything-the destroy-Trump side.

Even though he´s been fired,I still think Bannon is a negative influence on Trump. I´m sure trump still has contact with Bannon who I think is a half baked right wing extremist.This is causing the chaos from the rest of the WH staff who´s trying to calm things down.Trump makes Bannon like- statements then has to walk them back,like the latest "scandal" that Trump wants to quadruple our nuclear war heads. I mean how many do you need the destroy the Earth? several times over?

Going to Gabriel Sherman and “Vanity Fair” for insightful information about the inner workings of the Trump administration is like reading the Boston sports pages for inside scoops about the Yankees.
For the Gabriel Shermans of the Fourth Estate, election night in 2016 was sunset of the day the music died. So heavily invested in an orderly transfer of power from Obama to Clinton was he that moral and intellectual bankruptcy naturally ensued when Trump disrupted those plans. This piece is nothing more or less than the usual narrative of the bankrupt...”not my fault, my creditors are monsters, everybody knows there are dark forces working against me” and every other trope that losers use when caught backing the wrong horse.
For a journalist who holds himself in self-approving high regard at Sherman’s level, it must be galling to have to resort to unnamed sources and third-hand information in order to get a few thousand words under his byline at Vanity Fair. Trump Derangement Syndrome writ large.

He Worries Gabe will go off the deep end and do something terrible. Everyone who knows Gabe thinks he´s going to explode and do something horrible. Sources close to Gabe keep a close eye on him......! See what I mean! ANYONE can make up a story! I think that´s how Gabe gets most of his Articles...he makes them up! I don´t pay any attention to Authors who use "Sources close to..." or "Someone high up in the White House says". Give me a NAME!

This is a pile of what we already know to be Fake News, trotted out with sinister speculation.

The real point of this fictional article is not to report anything truthful but to give the msm and their apparatchik on TV something to talk about. This is just part of the Democrat meme that President Trump is unstable and needs to be removed from office. Especially now that the Russian collusion seems to losing steam. The coup d´etat by the deep state and the msm continues unabated.

The liberal bastion of the MSM sit around all morning trying to decide which story should be the most damaging to Trump, then they launch the story with crazed effort. Thankfully, at least half of the country has zero belief in anything they print or broadcast anymore. The crazed half can’t stop screaming their fake news.

#15 Nobody called anybody a troll.

#11 simply agreed with #5 that trolls hate Trump just like Gabriel Sherman hates Trump.

As far as Bannon goes, I would suggest that anyone who wants to know what value or detriment he brings to the table, Google "The League of Extraordinary Candidates" over at Breitbart. There is a conservative tsunami coming folks. Get ready to back your own local candidate. As for me, I will be helping Kevin Nicholson defeat Tammy Baldwin next fall. In one of his first ads, I heard him say he wants to stop the "leftist, obstructionist agenda of Tammy Balwin". He got my vote right there.

One other thing, the article states that after Luther Strange lost to Judge Moore that: “Alabama was a huge blow to his psyche,” a person close to Trump said. “He saw the cult of personality was broken.” I think the author gets it exactly wrong. His cult of personality wasn´t broken. It was enhanced. It isn´t about Trump. It´s about what he represents. MAGA doesn´t reside in Trump but he represents it in no uncertain terms. When the citizens of Alabama elected Judge Moore, they elected someone who stands for everything Trump has been talking about.
He even wins when he loses!

The Never Trumpers are just as desperate as the Demonrats. Make no mistake, they loathe President Trump and stand with people like Bob Corker. Steve Bannon is their boogie man under the bed and I predict things are going to get a lot scarier for them as they see their DC Establishment idols fall one by one.

Bannon is one of the best things that happened to the Trump campaign, and it was a smart move to step out of the constricted situation in the White House and back to where he could do a lot of good in fundraising and planning that would have been more difficult otherwise.

The Bannon haters probably think that Ryan and McConnell are doing a sterling job, and that all we need is to get Trump to calm down and "act like a normal President" and everything will be peaceful and nice. Peaceful and nice is for losers.

This is a "war by other means", the old definition of politics and Bannon understands that and is willing to fight as hard as the Demonrats.

Unfortunately, fighting hard and taking no excuses offends the civilized sensibilities of the old line "conservative" folks like George Will and many more, and apparently some posters here, who desperately want to believe this Fake News.

The American people sent President Trump to DC to drain the swamp. That’s what Trump has been doing. The swamp consists of all sorts of creatures who do not like their swamp being drained. Some of those creatures are dangerous alligators who will do anything to save their individual and special interest financial apple carts. That’s why the swamp is engaging in psychological warfare by putting out fake news tall stories like this.

Hillary Clinton breaks toe falling down

Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on

Fusion GPS to House: We´ll take Fifth
rather than testify on Trump dossier
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 10/17/2017 7:37:46     Post Reply
On October 4, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm at the center of the Trump dossier affair. On Monday, the company told the House what it can do with its subpoena. Fusion GPS chief Glenn Simpson and two others will "invoke their constitutional privileges not to testify," Simpson´s lawyers told the committee in a letter. The panel shouldn´t even bother to call Simpson to the hearing room, the lawyers said, because he won´t answer their questions under any circumstances. It seems unlikely the House will grant that request. If Simpson and two other GPS officials are

Trump Given A Subpoena For All
Documents Relating To Assault Allegations
Buzzfeed, by Jessica Garrison and Kendall Taggart    Original Article

A high-stakes legal showdown is brewing for President Donald Trump, as a woman who said he groped her has subpoenaed all documents from his campaign pertaining to “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” The subpoena — whose contents have not been previously reported — was issued in March but entered into the court file last month. The White House did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Trump’s attorney. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice, accused Trump of kissing and grabbing her when she went to his bungalow at

There´s Only One Hero in the Harvey
Weinstein Saga: Ronan Farrow
Weekly Standard, by Lee Smith    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 10/12/2017 8:40:02     Post Reply
On Tuesday the New Yorker published Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein, describing in detail the famous Hollywood producer’s long history of sexual abuse and assaults of actresses and other women in the movie industry. Coming on the heels of a New York Times article published last Thursday about Weinstein, the Farrow article seems to clinch the case against a major figure in the world of entertainment, media, and politics. The question is why, after years of protecting Weinstein, did the American press publish two pieces about him in less than a week? Was it because after stories detailing the sex

An American woman and her family, who had been held captive since 2012 by the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network after being kidnapped while hiking in Afghanistan, were freed, the White House announced Thursday. Caitlin Coleman, 32, was seven months pregnant when she and her Canadian husband Josh Boyle were abducted. President Trump appeared to hint at the news of Coleman´s release during a speech in Coleman´s home state of Pennsylvania. "Something happened today, where a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news," Trump said. "And one of my generals came in. They said, ´You know, I have to tell

The piece was originally supposed to air on the network in February as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars. Why didn’t NBC News break the Harvey Weinstein bombshell that ultimately ended up in The New Yorker under the byline of one of its contributors? It’s a question Rachel Maddow put to Ronan Farrow — until this summer an NBC News contributor fronting a series called Undercovered — who had been working on the story for 10 months. Farrow’s piece was originally targeted to air on NBC in February, just as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars, sources tell The Hollywood

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

About 90 percent of Republican voters eventually supported the political novice Donald Trump by November 2016. Most conservatives saw him as the preferable alternative to the vision and agendas of Hillary Clinton. Perhaps most still do after nine months of his presidency. Yet almost half of the elite conservative establishment remains opposed to Republican President Trump. About a quarter of them, it seems, openly despise him. These are prominent Republican senators, think-tank writers, television pundits, op-ed columnists, and generic public intellectuals. MSNBC and CNN are now homes for disgruntled Republicans or former conservative pundits in the way that those outlets once for

Some readers have asked us about a piece by Sharon Waxman, a former reporter for The New York Times who went on to found the entertainment news website The Wrap. Ms. Waxman writes that Times editors “gutted” a story she reported in 2004 on sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Ms. Waxman’s piece was prompted by a Times investigation published last week that found that Mr. Weinstein had sexually harassed numerous women over nearly three decades, and that he had paid at least eight settlements to these women. As a result of the article, Mr. Weinstein was fired from his

After Hurricane Maria’s landslides and flooding further isolated this mountain town, a volunteer doctor rushed to treat diabetic Brunilda Sovilaro, found on the floor of her home, covered in insects, unable to walk, disoriented and refusing to leave. “You are sick. You are very hot,” Dr. Jorge Lopez of Orlando, Fla., told the 50-year-old woman. “Your sugar needs to be controlled. You have chest pain. It could be a problem with your heart. You need to go to the hospital.” Eventually the doctor, a Puerto Rico native who returned to the island from Florida to volunteer, persuaded Sovilaro to board an ambulance

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of

As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government

"We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem.

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Sen. John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America´s foreign policy, saying "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington, "I´m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won´t be pretty." He bemoaned McCain´s decisive
