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.

Congress seeks answers after FBI
claims texts missing in Trump-Russia probe
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/21/2018 10:58:14     Post Reply
Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

A top staffer on Megyn Kelly’s show has been fired after claiming there is a “toxic and demeaning” environment on set, rife with bullying and “abusive treatment.” Kevin Bleyer was fired as a writer from “Megyn Kelly Today” this week after complaining that Kelly’s two top execs, Jackie Levin and Christine Cataldi, were bullying lower level members of staff. He was fired even though Kelly has made fighting abuse her personal crusade. Plus, in the wake of Matt Lauer’s firing, NBC ordered all staff to report workplace bad behavior, supposedly without fear or reprisal.

Government shutdown looking
more likely by the minute
New York Post, by Bob Fredericks    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/19/2018 7:37:55     Post Reply
Senate Democrats said Thursday they had enough votes to block a GOP short-term budget deal — increasing the likelihood of a government shutdown as Friday’s midnight deadline loomed. A senior Senate Democratic aide told The Washington Post it was “almost certain” that a spending extension does not have the votes to pass the upper chamber. The Democrats want the bill to include relief for the Dreamers — immigrants brought here illegally as children and who were protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. But President Trump and immigration hard-liners in Congress want to deal with DACA at a later date. With the

First place in Trump’s touted awards went to the Times’ Paul Krugman, who “claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover,” according to the list of awards posted on the RNC’s website. ABC News placed second for Brian Ross’ error that caused a brief stock market crash, and CNN placed third, sixth, seventh and ninth. President Trump announced in a tweet Wednesday night that the winners have been chosen. “And the FAKE NEWS winners are…” Trump tweeted, along with a link to the results.

Rupert Murdoch suffered a serious back injury while vacationing on his son Lachlan’s yacht in the Caribbean earlier this month, three sources familiar with the incident told Vanity Fair. The 86-year-old media mogul was helicoptered off the boat and was, until recently, recovering in a Los Angeles hospital, one of the sources said. The incident is said to have happened shortly after the New Year’s holiday. Last Friday night, Murdoch sent an email to his senior management informing them of the accident: "I hope you all are having a great start to 2018. I suspect it has been better than mine,"

On Monday, October 2, 2017, Harvey Weinstein arrived at work earlier than usual. As was his custom, he barked orders and moved from room to room inside his spacious office suite at 375 Greenwich Street, the New York City headquarters of the Weinstein Company (T.W.C.), a beautiful old red-brick factory building that had been converted into a center of the film universe. The producer had formed the enterprise some 12 years earlier after he and his brother and partner, Bob Weinstein, exited their fabled Miramax operation, home to such critical and commercial successes as Shakespeare in Love, Pulp Fiction, and Sex,

How Michael Wolff Got Into the White
House for His Tell-All Book
Bloomberg, by Jennifer Jacobs    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/17/2018 12:24:45     Post Reply
Author Michael Wolff’s pitch to the White House to win cooperation for his book included a working title that signaled a sympathetic view, a counter-narrative to a slew of negative news stories early in Donald Trump’s presidency. He called it “The Great Transition: The First 100 Days of the Trump Administration.” And in part due to that title, Wolff was able to exploit an inexperienced White House staff who mistakenly believed they could shape the book to the president’s liking.

The White House believed it had an agreement with the House Intelligence Committee to limit questions for Steve Bannon only to events on the presidential campaign, and not during the ousted former chief strategist´s time in the Trump administration, an official told CNBC. According to the White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, staffers for the committee and the White House on Friday discussed the parameters of Bannon´s testimony. The White House emerged from that conversation believing it had an agreement to limit the questioning of Bannon just to events during the campaign, and not during the

Lawmakers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election vowed Tuesday to force answers from Steve Bannon after the former senior strategist to President Donald Trump stonewalled their inquiries — even after the committee issued a subpoena with bipartisan support. Lawmakers in both parties attributed Bannon´s silence to the White House, which they said told him to refuse to discuss his time in the West Wing or on Trump´s transition team. Bannon´s refusal to speak clearly angered lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee, who vowed to make him speak.

U.S. counterintelligence officials in early 2017 warned Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump´s son-in-law and senior adviser, that Wendi Deng Murdoch, a prominent Chinese-American businesswoman, could be using her close friendship with Mr. Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, to further the interests of the Chinese government, according to people familiar with the matter. U.S. officials have also had concerns about a counterintelligence assessment that Ms. Murdoch was lobbying for a high-profile construction project funded by the Chinese government in Washington, D.C., one of these people said. The project, a planned $100 million Chinese garden at the National Arboretum, was deemed a

Congressional investigations into the Trump dossier have so far been focused on the FBI and Justice Department. They still are, but now investigators are also looking into a possible Obama State Department role in the collection and dissemination of sensational and still-unverified allegations against candidate Donald Trump gathered by a former British spy working for the Hillary Clinton campaign. In addition to having contacts in the Obama Justice Department and FBI, that former spy, Christopher Steele, was also well-connected with the Obama State Department.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see.

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

"We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years.
