    While I was at a charity event this evening in Naples, FL to support children who lost their parents in combat, this absolute piece of garbage, and keyboard warrior, was busy tweeting away about MY character, & the character of OUR President. Hard pass on opinions from this loser https://t.co/EMhJUlmWCm— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) December 30, 2018 --- If you're president of the United States and you need a character witness... shouldn't you be able to draw on a Nelson Mandela/Mother Teresa/Elie Wiesel-type character? I mean, if @JesseBWatters & @dbongino are the people stepping up for you ... yikes.— David...

    The White House and President Trump took some heat on Saturday after it was announced that he would not make a previously scheduled visit to a cemetery in France for Americans killed in World War I due to inclement weather. Trump arrived in France on Friday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, along with first lady Melania Trump. They'd planned to visit Ainse-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, France. The president was expected to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence. The first couple was supposed to travel to the site via helicopter,...

    Munk Debates: Stephen Bannon and David Frum, set to spar on the future of western politics, speak to The Globe on their views At Fridays Munk debate in Toronto, Stephen Bannon, former strategist for U.S. President Donald Trump, and David Frum, a senior editor at The Atlantic magazine, will debate the following resolution: Be it resolved, the future of western politics is populist, not liberal. The Globe interviewed both debaters on their views. Politics is undergoing a sea change. Long-held notions of the role of government are being challenged by populist thinkers and movements. Does this populist agenda signal a...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real affliction that plagues many in the liberal media and many in the anti-Trump crowd. During an appearance on CNNs Reliable Sources on Sunday, David Frum, a faux Republican and editor for the left-leaning Atlantic, showed off how advanced his TDS was when he decried President Trump ahead of the historic North Korea summit as a cruel punishment against the American people for being irresponsible and hating the news media. CNN host Brian Stelter originally asked Frum to comment on President Trumps criticism of CNN while at the press conference at the G7 summit...

    RUSH: David Frum. Anybody remember the name David Frum? David Frum The absence of Melania Trump has had the Drive-By Media occupied here, in an unhealthy way. David Frum who used to be a ranking member of the conservative faux intelligentsia has actually speculated that one of the reasons she hasnt been seen is that Trump must have hit her! Trump must have punched her, and its taken this long to recover. From The Daily Caller: Atlantic Senior Editor David Frum openly theorized last weekend about President Trump punching his wife and covering it up. Frum sent a...

    David Frum, former President George W. Bush speechwriter, appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter today to discuss media in the age of Trump.The current Atlantic senior editor started off his monologue by making the following claim.  “The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media. Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them because what they are offering is a closed system of ideology and propaganda," Frum told Stelter.  On the surface, this sounds accurate. Astronomers...

Frum reacted to Charles Cookes assessment that the FBI undercut gun control arguments via the Bureaus June 21 press release on the Alexandria attack. Frum responded with a number of tweets, one of which said, The chop-logic denial of the connection between the developed worlds laxest gun laws-and worst gun violence-just seems such a waste of time.

  • A Question About Those Destroyed CIA Tapes

    12/07/2007 9:27:58 AM PST · by Callahan · 34 replies · 220+ views
    The prevailing assumption is that the tapes were destroyed to conceal harsh CIA interrogation methods. Gerald Posner suggests another possible explanation: Re the breaking news that the CIA destroyed the videotapes of interrogations with 2 terror suspects, you might have seen that the tapes of the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah were destroyed. You might also recall that in my 2003 NYT bestseller (reached #2), Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11, my last chapter was titled, "The Interrogation." Based on two active US intelligence sources, I was the first to disclose Zubaydah's interrogation. To date, I am the only...

    Former Bush Regime Official Predicts Coming Stalinist Blood Purge of Trump Supporters October 29, 2016| by Donn Marten A former speechwriter for President George W. Bush has made a chilling prediction that conjures up images of Stalinist Russia. David Frum who helped to coin the slogan “Axis of Evil” has openly stated that once the election is over that Trump supporters will be subjected to harsh “recriminations” that begin with exile from the Republican party and end up in very dark territory. The calls for punishment of those who are putting America first and exercising their right to participate in...

  • David Frum Ignores reality in his anti-gun "article"

    Gun Watch ^ | 30 June, 2015 | Dean Weingarten
    David Frum, in an article published in the Atlantic on 23 May, takes considerable liberties with the facts and truth. The article is under the "politics" section, so it should be a bit more concerned with facts than a typical opinion piece. But disarmists seldom let reality interfere with their fantasies. Frum makes a number of assertions as fact that are not true. He selectively ignores other facts that invalidate his thesis. Here are some of the more egregious errors. He claims that mass killing with firearms is a distinctly American phenomena. That is simply false, an echoing of...

    Following a brief feint in which the White House masterfully exploited the servility of congressional Republicans to create the impression that Barack Obama was still firmly in command of the country’s destiny, the revolt of liberal lawmakers over a proposed free trade has made it clear that the president is very much a lame duck. The internecine fight among Democrats over the Trans-Pacific Partnership has elevated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to the status as chief liberal opponent of a Democratic White House. “The government doesn’t want you to read this massive new trade agreement. It’s top secret,” Warren said...

    President Obamas executive action last week is only an interim step. More amnesty is coming, much more. It must. More amnesty is coming, first, because the presidents action creates an unsustainable status quo. Millions of people are about to obtain work permits and Social Security numbersbut not (or so the president says) any right to health coverage or other social benefits. What happens if they get sick? What if they lose their jobs? Suffer a debilitating injury at work? According to Obama, these people are as American as Sasha and Malia except for the small technical complication of lacking the...

    It’s finally happened. David Frum, true conservative.No no, kidding. This is, I think, something he pulled from his dream journal after waking up one night in a cold sweat, screaming. All it’ll take for a Cruz victory, he thinks, is an economic slowdown followed by an “event” on Wall Street that pushes America into recession followed by a months-long primary challenge by Elizabeth Warren to Hillary followed by an immigration brouhaha that unites conservatives behind Cruz followed by a Cruz/Christie fusion ticket eking out the narrowest of wins over Clinton in a very low-turnout election. Interestingly, the word “ObamaCare” appears...

    Daily Beast ^ | March 23, 2013 | David Frum
    The most arresting idea in Adam Winkler's impressively learned study of US gun law, Gunfight, is the suggestion that contemporary American gun culture was more or less invented by the Black Panthers. Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, the party founders, had studied law and discovered California allowed the carrying in public of loaded rifles and shotguns, provided that the guns were not pointed at anyone. They seized on this law to stage theatrical confrontations with an Oakland police force they deemed hostile and oppressive - and then, most dramatically, in May 1967, to walk armed into the chamber of the...

    In 2008, Mark Krikorian published an important new book arguing against permissive immigration. The book's central idea: what has changed since Ellis Island days is not the immigrants; it's the society they are immigrating to. In 1913, a Sicilian who migrated to New York City to do manual labor would discover a society willing to pay a high wage for his effort. In 2013 not so. Yesterday's New York Times reports on a new study confirming Krikorian's insight. People of Mexican descent in New York City are far more likely to be living in poor or near-poor households than...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Not all Republicans are happy with Mitt Romney's choice to make Rep. Paul Ryan his running mate. David Frum, former speech writer for President George W. Bush, is beside himself."At every turn, the party has demanded, 'More ideology! I gotta have more ideology!'" laments Frum in a column appearing on CNN.com. "With the selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate, Romney has now acceded to that wish. The least ideological Republican candidate since 1968 has committed himself to the most ideological Republican program since 1964."Actually, it was the least ideological Republican candidate since 1968 - Sen.

    How can someone who writes compelling nonfiction be so terrible at fiction? Ive just read the first few chapters of David Frums new novel, Patriots. It is bloody awful. It also defeats the purpose that Frum claims he intended for it, which was to write a novel that tells deeper truths than journalism. In fact it retreads ground Frum the journalist has gone over many times before, most notably his increasingly shrill belief that conservatives are nuts. Frum is a former conservative who is now trending liberal and may in fact be headed for the netherworld of Andrew Sullivanville; he...
