    Resistance is profitable The New York Times is selling tickets for a night with resistance leader Sally Yates. The Times is charging $30—and half-price tickets for subscribers—for a "rare conversation" with the former Obama Justice Department holdover who refused to enforce President Trump's executive order restricting travel from terrorist hot bed countries. "Join us for a rare conversation with Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general who was dismissed by President Trump last year after refusing to defend his first travel ban," the Times writes. Topics include prison reform, civil rights, and "the fine points of constitutional law." Yates herself...

    Something changed last weekend, did it not? The firing of Andrew McCabe. The statement by Trump lawyer John Dowd to The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff that Robert Mueller should end his probe soon. Donald Trump’s tweetstorm just after that, his first tweets mentioning Mueller by name along with promises by aides that more attacks are on the way. The amped-up speculation that Trump will fire Jeff Sessions and replace him with someone who hasn’t recused himself so that someone can fire Mueller. Somewhere in there also came an official reassurance by Trump lawyer Ty Cobb that the president has no...

    On the first day of spring, the fourth nor’easter in a month is barreling toward the Big Apple, where it is expected to dump as much as 10 inches of snow and disrupt travel Wednesday. A winter storm warning is in effect from 12 a.m. Wednesday until 8 a.m. Thursday, with heavy snow and winds of about 45 mph expected, according to AccuWeather. “The wintry mix during the evening commute will change to all snow overnight (Wednesday) as the temperatures fall to the upper 20s,” AccuWeather meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. The snow will intensify during the day Wednesday and is...

    The pornographic film actress who says she had an affair with President Trump offered on Monday to return $130,000 she received from Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer in 2016 for agreeing not to discuss the alleged relationship. In exchange, the actress, Stephanie Clifford, seeks an end to her deal to keep quiet about what she says was an affair with Mr. Trump that started in 2006 and lasted for several months. In the letter, which was sent to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, early Monday, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, wrote that Ms. Clifford would wire the money into an...
  • Vanity - NY Times has Saccone winning by 62% & then scraps prediction, suddenly....Election fraud?

    Last evening I began watching the PA-18th-CD election returns on the New York Times newspaper election results site...which is by far the best in the business for election reporting and background information. As the initial election returns flowed in, the Times indicated that, though the race was very close, it appeared like Conon Lamb would eke out a victory scoring 52%-48% over Rick Saccone. Then about fifteen minutes later, the Times suddenly changed its prediction to Saccone winning by a 62%-38% over Lamb. The Times said that they had information as to voting patterns in the Conservative counties, indicating a...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) So, what to make of the Rex Tillerson firing? ThereÂ’s a lot to unpack here, so IÂ’ll try to do it in a fairly orderly fashion. First, letÂ’s state up front the undeniable truth that Rex Tillerson was the nationÂ’s finest Secretary of State in a decade. Unlike his two immediate predecessors in the job, Mr. Tillerson is a patriot, a lover of America, a believer in promoting American-style Democracy around the world and protecting U.S. national security at home. He had no interest in selling AmericaÂ’s foreign policy to the...

    New York Times ^ | 03/13/2018 | Friedman
    One of the hardest things to accept for all of us who want Donald Trump to be a one-term president is the fact that some things are true even if Donald Trump believes them! And one of those things is that we have a real trade problem with China. Imports of Chinese goods alone equal two-thirds of the global U.S. trade deficit today. But while Trump’s gut instinct is right, he’s so ignorant about the facts, he’s so easily swayed by the last person he talked to or by ill-considered promises to his base, he’s so weirdly obsessed with protecting...

    The left (I refuse to call regressives "progressives") is finding it hard to deal with a reality in which the markets are up, unemployment is down, household income is rising, ISIS is being crushed, and Kim Jong-un is being lassoed. Former NYT editor Jill Abramson probably reflects the paper's Upper West Side of Manhattan when she reveals she carries as an amulet (against the reality of a Trump presidency) – a little Obama doll in her purse – to comfort herself. "It's easy to look at what's happening in Washington, DC, and despair. That's why I carry a little plastic...

    ......Enter The New York Times’ former executive editor Jill Abramson, who wrote that she carries an Obama doll in her purse as a symbol of hope in the Trump era. It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America.

Jill Abramson, 63, the former executive editor for The New York Times from 2011 to 2014, claimed she keeps a therapy doll of the 44th president to get her through the Trump Administration, she wrote in The Guardian Mar. 7th. The Harvard educated journalist previously wrote an Obama Administration book, “Obama: The Historic Journey,” published in 2009. Abramson discussed a so-called “Trump rebellion,” alleging there is a solid chance Democrats will win the...

    The New York Times reports that Christopher Liddell, former Microsoft and General Motors executive, and current White House official, is being considered to take over as President Trump's top economic adviser, following Gary Cohn's resignation. About Liddell: Per the Times, he "has worked closely with Jared Kushner," and has "the sort of experience" Trump is looking for, as having been the CFO for both Microsoft and General Motors. He helped GM bounce back after going bankrupt, the Times reports, and executed "the company's return to the public market."

    The American Conservative ^ | March 5, 2018 | Adam Weinstein
    It's past time the United States did some soul-searching and accept responsibility for exacerbating an unwinnable war in Afghanistan. This will require a rethink of Washington's current handling of Afghanistan and indeed its entire view of the region. Steve Coll recently made a cogent argument in the New York Times that the U.S. should seriously engage with China and other regional powers. However, this is impossible so long as Washington remains convinced that Pakistan alone is the primary impediment to peace rather than its own mistakes... Both Islamabad and Washington compete to wear the cloak of victimhood. Pakistan remains in...

    The New York Times has broken ranks with the the establishment media, publishing an effective mea culpa over the mainstream denial of migrant-related gang crime in Sweden. The paper — which previously mocked President Trump for highlighting Sweden’s migrant crime problems — published over 1,500 words on the subject in its Sunday edition this weekend, stating: Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places. But gang-related assaults and shootings are...

    Amnesty International said an analysis of an official Feb. 21 video released by the Egyptian military, trumpeting the triumphs of its northern Sinai crackdown on militants, showed one of the weapons, which can kill and maim indiscriminately. Although the video described the weapons as improvised explosive devices planted by the militants, Amnesty said, the markings on one identified it as an American-made Mk-118 anti-tank anti-personnel submunition, "which could only have been dropped by the Egyptian Air Force." Amnesty said the video showed the weapon to be "untampered with and in good condition despite its age," with an identifying number clearly...

    One of the stories for which the New York Times won a coveted George Polk Award was a Russia-Trump report that was repudiated by former FBI Director James Comey. The Times won the award on Feb. 20 for 12 stories it submitted on Donald Trump and his associates ties to Russia, according to a list provided by Polk to The Washington Times. One of them was a Feb. 14, 2017 story headlined, “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts with Russian Intelligence.”
