Revelations in Michael Wolff’s Fire and
Fury Aren’t News inside the Beltway

National Review, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/10/2018 7:24:44 AM

In Trump´s D.C., insiders knew what Wolff had to tell before he told the world. ‘Fishermen, sharpen your hooks, bring out the cheese balls and grease your bicycles. Soon there’s going to be trout fishing inside the Beltway.” That’s the first time the phrase “inside the Beltway” – meaning, in this instance, the physical realm within the I-495 ring road that surrounds Washington, D.C. – appeared in the Washington Post, the official Beltway paper. It showed up in a 1977 story about stocking the Anacostia River with trout. It wasn’t until 1983 that the term became reliably figurative, signifying, according

Yesterday, our President hosted a wonderful, transparent meeting for all of us to see. He was intelligent, fair, thoughtful and completely sane. It´s hard to believe that on the heels of this very important meeting about immigration policies, Jonah is still bashing our President and writing about that ridiculous book.

Jonah really scrapes the bottom of the barrel with one.

It´s a pity when one pens such trash.

Interesting article - I do try to read widely - it is part of being an informed citizen - too many read only one side of issues. Jonah is saying what many others are.

I started reading National Review on line when Jonah was a young man writing about his trip to Alaska to meet his future wife´s family. Stories about bears on the road-he was sharp and funny. I looked forward to listening to him on Ricochet podcast, BUT, then came the last election. I miss him, but can´t read or listen anymore. Lucianne your nephew needs to spend a few months in Alaska, or anywhere out of the enclosed political world he inhabits. Fresh air is needed.

Jonah´s Never Trumpism is a one-note pony.
He seems convinced he must establish his bonafides before the impeachment and conviction he obviously hopes for.
And he´s being as snobby as Bill Kristol which is not a good look.

The author’s creased-pant-admiring buddy, David Brooks, had a wise observation hidden in his own never-trumping NYT piece on Monday:

"I´ve noticed a lot of young people look at the monotonous daily hysteria of we anti-Trumpers and they find it silly."

But . . . it´s not just young people.

My advice to both authors: relax. We rubes in flyover country are able to discern between the Fury of the drama and the Fire in the belly of this president to excel in his job serving our country. What matters to us is that our 401Ks are up, unemployment is down, business is booming, our international primacy is restored, and a man who loves and is proud of this country is implementing the most conservative agenda we’ve seen in decades. We tire of the constant know-it-all implication from our Betters that we are stupid for having voted for someone beneath your standards.

Hey Jonah, did you ever stop to think that all of those inhabitants of the DC suburbs are dependent on a VERY BIG government for their jobs and existence? Trump is cutting the size of agencies and cutting of the gravy train for the overpaid lobbyists and Beltway Bandit Consultants who are ever writing up long reports on how to fix problems and then writing another report on how to fix the same problem when another grant is let out. Even if they run the dry cleaner or car dealership they depend on the government money that their customers will use to pay for their service or product. Take a drive out Rt 7 past Dulles Airport and you will find a half dozen high end car dealerships including Maserati, Tesla, and Alpha Romeo. These are the cars that these pigs at the government trough are buying. I lived in one of those now richest counties for over 30 years and saw it change from working class/semi-rural to almost completely inhabited by Government workers and those dependent on the government. Jonah, did you ever think that maybe these people hate Trump because he is a threat? I know that the one´s who will soon be ex EPA employees do.

The phrase, "Inside the Beltway" was already in widespread use in 1972 when I lived in the area and I-495 only had two lanes going in each direction. "Outside the Beltway" was nothing but small suburbs and farmland. Now it´s just another ribbon of traffic in an area that has exploded with overpaid government worker bees and the many firms that are attached to the government teet.

No clicks from me for Jonah. I´m glad however that there can be no doubt about where his positions are. He certainly is no fiscal conservative and has apparently sold out to the Ruling Elite class.
It would be wise for him to look for another line of work for the next 15 years, once the results of this Administration begin to show up around the Country.This is what History has shown us.
I feel sorry for you Lucianne. It must hurt you to see someone you love so much, acting in such a delusional, and self-destructive fashion!

We have $20 trillion in debt, N. Korea HAS nukes, globalism runs amok, an insane immigration policy designed for one party´s success high taxes, weakened military.

Washington DC is one big pile of gossip as is Hollywood. The people who live close to these places know far more than we do. People talk, including the ones supposedly close to Trump. You are naive if you don´t believe that. Jonah is writing what many don´t want to know. If it was Hillary or Obama, you would believe it in a New York minute.

Since I refuse to buy his book, all I gather from the book is that Trump isn´t that knowledgeable about stuff. I really couldn´t care less about who actually is running the goverment- Trump or all his Secretaries (Defense, State, Homeland Security, etc) and John Kelly, I care that the country is in a better shape than a year ago. Just like while it may have been interesting gossip about whether Obama or ValJar was running things, the country was doing poorly. I was one of those people who was not sure he wanted the job, was skeptical of him because of his support of Clinton before, etc. I voted for him hoping he would keep his promise of nominating a constituitional Supreme Court judge. I am so much relieved and so happy with the outcome now. He may not have thought he would win, he may golf too much but other people are being allowed to do their jobs and the result is great. I am not saying any part of that book is true but I do not really care.

On a chilly and gray Monday in D.C. a few weeks ago, President Trump was sitting on the South Lawn among a group of children during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, when CNN’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, shouted a question at him. “Mr. President, what about the DACA kids? Should they worry about what is going to happen to them, sir?” Trump answered, blaming the situation on the Democrats, but Acosta persisted in a follow-up: “Didn’t you kill DACA, sir? Didn’t you kill DACA?” Trump didn’t respond, but plenty of others did. Conservative sites were indignant, accusing Acosta of

A third federal judge has rejected the Trump administration’s justification for winding down the program protecting immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children. U.S. District Court Judge John Bates said on Tuesday that the Department of Homeland Security’s legal explanation for the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, was too flimsy and, ultimately, unpersuasive. “DACA’s rescission was arbitrary and capricious because the Department failed adequately to explain its conclusion that the program was

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day.

Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate.

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
