  • Donald Trump: Chuck Schumer ‘Leading Democrats to Doom’

    During his speech in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Donald Trump attacked Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), describing him as a “bad leader” who is “leading the Democrats to doom.” Discussing the opposition from Democrats to his plans to build a border wall, Trump said, “Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress have no leadership, they are rudderless.” “Senator Schumer is a bad leader. I’ve known him a long time, Senator Schumer is a bad leader, not a natural leader at all. He works hard to study leadership … Well if you have to study leadership you’ve got problems,” Trump said. “His policies are hurting...

    It's not just Trump's strike at Syria. A new generation of veterans in Congress, led by Mike Gallagher, are calling for a return to order. After World War II, the United States created an international system aimed at preventing the kinds of catastrophic conflicts that consumed the first half of the 20th century. This system was underwritten by hard power such as the American nuclear arsenal and the NATO alliance. Yet, underneath those foundations, the American-backed order was really about maintaining norms of international behavior. Throughout the Cold War, successive administrations from both political parties realized that the United States...

    the Hill ^ | March 29, 2017 | BY MARK MECKLER
    When Mitt Romney selected Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, people cheered. He was young, attractive, idealistic, and — doggone it! — he did P90x. Images of him lifting weights bounced across the internet. Surely this is what the GOP needed, they said. New blood. Youth. Strength. The fact that his losing bid against Barack Obama and Joe Biden was the high mark of his career says a great deal about his legacy. His lack of true leadership has grown more and more evident. During the last week, Speaker Ryan's stature managed to shrink in regard to Congress, and...

    One by one the barriers are falling for an impending Trump triumph. Ted Poe (R-TX), a U.S. Representative and former member of the House Freedom Caucus, has announced Sunday afternoon that he will be resigning from the group that aided in destroying the Paul Ryan-led GOP’s attempt to repeal Obama’s 2010 healthcare act. The House Freedom Caucus has been under fire and was heavily criticized by numerous Republicans before the GOP healthcare plan fell apart on Friday. The Texas Tribune got a statement from Rep. Poe: “I have resigned from the House Freedom Caucus. In order to deliver on the...

    As he gave his brief press conference Friday afternoon confirming that Republicans had pulled their bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, House Speaker Paul Ryan both looked and sounded like a hangdog high school football coach spilling out a few defeated platitudes after watching his team get ground into the turf. “Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains,” he said, “and, well, we’re feeling those growing pains today.” “We came really close today, but we came up short.” “I will not sugarcoat this. This is a disappointing day for us. Doing...

    The way to help women continue to move forward isn’t to propagate the myth that women in the United States are victims, oppressed by the system and unable to help themselves secure a better future.Yet that’s exactly the message of the “A Day Without a Woman” strike happening Wednesday.Various organizers, including the Women’s March crowd and other feminists, are pushing women to “take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor,” as well as by not shopping (except at “small, women- and minority-owned businesses”) and by wearing red.An op-ed advocating the strike published in The Guardian last month by eight...
  • Beyond the Kruger-Dunning Effect (Erdogan's Turkey or Obama's US? EXPLAINED)

    Washington Hatti ^ | 2-25-17 | Abraham Thicke
    The Kruger-Dunning effect refers to the inability of incompetent individuals to accurately assess their own competence. It was first discovered by two psychologists, you can guess their names, who asked students to predict their exam scores before taking the exam. Whilst students gaining high marks accurately predicted their scores, low scoring students grossly overestimated how well they would perform. The phenomenon, replicated many times, is usually explained in terms of metacognitive abilities. Since these skills are critical for both gaining and assessing competence, people with low levels of metacognitive ability are doubly cursed. The Kruger Dunning effect is surprisingly resistant...

    Kellie Leitch is now the first choice for over one-fifth of Conservative party members, passing Maxime Bernier and nipping at the heels of an increasingly polarizing Kevin O’Leary campaign, according to the latest iPolitics CPC Leadership Tracker — powered by Mainstreet Research. Mainstreet reached 804 members between February 9 and 12 and found — with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 per cent, 19 times out of 20 — that Kevin O’Leary was the first choice for 22.01 per cent of members, followed by Leitch (20.90 per cent), and Bernier (17.54 per cent). The first leadership poll, conducted between...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is no conservative, and certainly no fan of Donald Trump. The headline of a column he wrote during the campaign, after all, was “Trump’s Hitlerian disregard for the truth.” Which makes his column of today, “Thanks to no-drama Obama, American leadership is gone,” which absolutely rips the bark off Barack Obama, all the more remarkable. Observing that Obama “has been all too happy to preside over the loss of American influence,” he describes the current president as having “waved a droopy flag. He did not want to make America great again. It was great enough...

    After the Republican avalanche of a victory in last month's elections, there was still more good news for the Grand Old Brand New Party courtesy of Nancy Pelosi. It seems she's eked out a narrow victory over a Democratic insurgency against her stultified leadership of the party in the House, a leadership that has been rusting for the past 14 years. If everything isn't coming up roses for the GOP, at least there are tulips covering the horizon the way daffodils do Wye Mountain every spring. And all Nancy Pelosi could say about her aforementioned "leadership" was the same thing...

    ..... Ellison's sordid past associations with Louis Farrakhan -- the long time leader of the Nation of Islam -- will hurt him in Middle America.... In addition to embracing American enemies abroad, Farrakhan has exhibited a penchant for lacing his sermons with anti-Semitic hate speech. Around the time that Ellison was working with the Nation of Islam, for example, Farrakhan was delivering speeches attacking "the synagogue as Satan." He described Jews as "wicked deceivers of the American people" that have "wrapped [their] tentacles around the U.S. government" and are "deceiving and sending this nation to hell." ....

    Like most Americans, but unlike most of the other 434 members of the House of Representatives, Andy Harris pulls a lengthy commute to work each day. One way and without traffic, the Maryland Republican says he can go door to door in an hour and a half from his home in Cockeysville to his office on Capitol Hill. But if he hits traffic, it takes almost three hours just to get to work. Harris doesn’t mind. As a physician, he says he’s used to long hours in the operating room and, as a single father, the 60-mile trek is necessary...

    STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA'S FAILED LEADERSHIP "Obama-Clinton have single-handedly destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, and allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi. Then they put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons. Then they allowed dozens of veterans to die waiting for medical care that never came. Hillary Clinton put the whole country at risk with her illegal email server, deleted evidence of her crime, and lied repeatedly about her conduct which endangered us all. They released criminal aliens into our country who killed one innocent American after another -- like...

    Andrea Leadsom has pulled out of the contest to become the next Conservative Party leader and UK PM - with Theresa May now set to succeed David Cameron. Mrs Leadsom said she did not believe she had sufficient support to lead a "strong and stable government". She also said a nine-week leadership campaign at such a "critical time" for the UK would be "highly undesirable". The energy minister said Mrs May was "ideally placed" to implement Brexit, and wished her the "greatest success". A source close to the energy minister told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg "the abuse has been...

    ABC and NPR’s Cokie Roberts on Sunday blamed “inherit bias” and the fact that Hillary Clinton is a “woman” for the reason she’s not doing well in the leadership category in polls. While discussing potential vice presidential picks for Clinton on ABC’s “This Week,” Roberts said, “I think Elizabeth Warren is the real problem. Not only does [Clinton] not need her in terms of the Democrats, Hillary Clinton in our last ABC poll had 88 percent of the Democratic vote. Barack Obama got 89 percent of the Democratic vote when he won in 2008. It’s fine.”
