    Former House Speaker John Boehner said earlier this week that Donald Trump’s presidency has been “a complete disaster” thus far and that the billionaire-turned-commander-in-chief is still learning on the job. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” Boehner said during a question-and-answer session at a conference in Houston on Wednesday. “He’s still learning how to be president.” ~snip~ He seemed content with his life as a retired politician and was quick to shoot down any talk of a future presidential bid. “I wake up every day, drink my morning coffee and say hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,” Boehner...

    If This Politico Story Is True, the President Needs New Advisers May 11, 2017 RUSH: The Politico today… By the way, you need to be reading all of these and watching all these stories with more doubt and disbelief than you have ever mustered. As you read, or any time you see “anonymous source said,” you must disbelieve it. The evidence is much greater and much of this is made up than that it is legitimate and real. You must remember that media isn’t media. You are not reading “the news.” You are being inculcated. You’re being propagandized. You are...

    White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Politico on Friday as not being trustworthy. During the White House daily press briefing, a reporter asked Sanders about a Politico story on the Trump administration planning on gutting the Office of National Drug Control Policy's budget. Sanders answered by giving the reporter some advice. "Look, my first piece of advice would never be to use Politico for a source for your story," Sanders said. Sanders then said she could not comment on the budget right now because it is just a draft. No reporters asked Sanders about her comments on...

    The May 1 issue of The Weekly Standard led its “Scrapbook” section with a nice dig at Politico for a story last September touting the strategic genius who mined data for the er, President Hillary campaign. The headline was "Clinton's Towering Fiasco." Elan Kriegel’s “erasable marker scribblings reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind that amount to some of the earliest drafts of the computer algorithms that underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign’s most important strategic decisions.” They didn’t mock Politico’s Shane Goldmacher by name, but did enjoy the sound of his beautiful-mind gush back then: To understand Kriegel’s role is...

    RUSH: President Trump told a funny story not long ago. A bunch of people were seated around the dinner table, and President Trump was talking about not long after I’d arrived in New York. He said, “Yeah, I’m asking everybody who’s this Limbaugh guy? Nobody knows who this Limbaugh guy is. And they start telling me who this Limbaugh guy is and I said, ‘Well, I gotta get on that show.’ And my friends told me, ‘You can’t get on that show. He doesn’t take guests. He does three straight hours with no guests and hardly any phone calls. You...

    The newly-named CEO of Politico has a long history of donating large sums to Democratic candidates and causes and served under former President Bill Clinton. Politico announced Tuesday that investment banker Patrick Steel would be replacing previous CEO and co-founder Jim VandeHei, who departed in 2016. Politico‘s owner, Robert Allbritton, and editor in chief, John Harris, informed the staff in a memo before making a public statement. "Patrick understands that the heart and soul—the power— of Politico rests on great, indispensable journalism, and the global impact of our reporting," they wrote. "Patrick's arrival allows us to engage with the big...

    Please Senator Warner! Please find our Great Pumpkin and we will reward you with a presidential nomination! The Great Pumpkin in this case is proof of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia to somehow change the 2016 election results. After weeks of fervent searching by both the Democrats and their mainstream media allies, no proof of their Great Pumpkin which could bring electoral salvation has been found. They still continue to search with the spotlight now on Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The reward for finding their Great...

    After Donald Trump wrapped up his first speech to Congress and worked his way through the crowd, he lingered on his handshake with Anthony Kennedy, the 80-year-old Supreme Court justice. The boom mics picked up their seemingly private conversation. “Say hello to your boy,” Trump said, “Special guy.” “Your kids have been very nice to him,” Kennedy replied. “Well,” Trump said, “they love him, and they love him in New York.” While the White House is focused this week on shepherding Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, through the Senate confirmation process, the president and his team are obsessed...

And we’ve seen these Bolshevik plagiarism accusations before, where people take the most nitpicky, technical, extreme definition of what might be called plagiarism - don’t even achieve that standard - and yet toss the charge around anyway just so politicians will have an excuse to declare themselves “troubled” and cast aspersions on the nominee and his supporters.

    Thursday's New York Times has a report on how the highly suspicious dossier alleging that Donald Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents came into existence. Among the other interesting revelations was that the dubious opposition research report was put together by the research firm Fusion GPS: The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate's past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort....

    When reading the series of charts containing a weird labyrinth of rather tenuous connections published in the March/April edition of Politico Magazine, it is hard not to channel Inspector Jacques Clouseau trying to connect the unrelated dots to make the case that was always far off the mark. The Politico dots on the series of seven elaborate charts are chock full of oligarchs, both Russian and Ukrainian, a beauty contest, a mixed martial artist, a dossier that no one has seen, a couple of Russian energy giants not to be confused with a regular Russian oil company, and, to top it off,...

    Woo! Hoo! In the nine special state legislative elections since the biggest upset in political history last November the Democrats have made no net gains. Aren't you impressed by their fantastic performance? No? Then you are probably normal. Yet Politico takes this fact in their March 5 article by Gabriel Debenedetti and acts like it is some sort of great victory portending great things for the Democrats in the future.  You won't know whether to laugh or yawn while reading Politico going into desperate feel-good overdrive hyping the Democrats based on incredibly thin gruel:

    Shortly after President Donald Trump vowed to “do something” about the “cunning” media who he once again called “the enemy” of the American people, CNN announced on air it had been barred from today’s White House briefing. CNN reports New York Times, Los Angles Times, and Politico also were told they were not on the White House list, for today’s off-camera briefing. Breitbart, Fox News, Washington Times, and One America News Network were among those given entry, CNN reported. Today’s off-camera gaggle is distinct from the on-camera White House Press Briefing led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, which is not...

    President Donald Trump reportedly isn't adjusting well to life in the White House after his first month in office. That's according to Axios' Mike Allen's latest newsletter, in which he writes that a Trump adviser told him the president is experiencing "cabin fever" in the White House. Trump is reportedly experiencing headaches and frustration that he can't spend his evenings dining at restaurants like he could around Trump Tower in his old neighborhood in New York City. Trump's campaign-style rally in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday — during which he castigated the news media and mentioned a nonexistent incident in Sweden...

    C-SPAN released a survey Friday that asked historians to rank past presidents and former-President Obama was voted the country's 12th best, right behind Woodrow Wilson and in front of James Monroe. Historians were asked to essentially grade the presidents on items like “public persuasion” and “moral authority.” Politico reported that Obama rated high in the category of “equal justice for all,” but received low marks for his relationship with Congress.

    The Clintons are already plotting their comeback, a new report details. Hillary Clinton is looking for a path to return to the political fray, as both she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, examine how the former secretary of state suffered the most surprising, epic political defeat in recent memory, Politico reports. “Despite the grave disappointment, resilience is in the Clintons’ DNA. So, while I certainly don’t expect to see them trying to assert their authority, I think there will be natural and welcome opportunities for them to engage,” said Mack McLarty, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff.

    See also: Ben Smith and the Memory Hole. Buzzfeed editor Ben Smith has had a rough week. As the man who decided to publish the “secret dossier” about Donald Trump’s alleged hijinks in Moscow, he has suffered the ultimate indignity of having even MSNBC call him out for publishing fake news. Earlier he sent a note to Buzzfeed staff explaining his decision. “Our presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers,” he wrote. “We have always erred on the side of publishing.” If true, Ben Smith has come a long way...
