  • Conservative columnist George Will wins over liberals with scathing takedown of Trump, congressional 'enablers'

    “This unraveling presidency began with the Crybaby-in-Chief banging his spoon on his highchair tray to protest a photograph — a photograph — showing that his inauguration crowd the day before had been smaller than the one four years previous. Since then, this weak person’s idea of a strong person, this chest-pounding advertisement of his own gnawing insecurities, this low-rent Lear raging on his Twitter-heath has proven that the phrase malignant buffoon is not an oxymoron,” Will wrote.

    VIDEO Imagine you are from a prominent political family and wanted desperately to become President most of your life. You finally have that opportunity and actually turn in what was considered to be perhaps the best presidential debate performance of all time. And then, like an idiot, you listen to your advisers and go easy on the incumbent who takes full advantage of your lapse in the next two debates. As a result you have LOST what should have been a winnable election. Such was the situation of Mitt Romney. So in the next election, a man he snobbishly...

    Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn doubled down on accusation she lobbed against Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman Thursday, alleging he's the whistleblower’s handler who leaked the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky—despite his attorney accusing her of “slander” and “defamatory tweets.” “Adam Schiff is hailing Alexander Vindman as an American patriot. How patriotic is it to badmouth and ridicule our great nation in front of Russia, America’s greatest enemy?” her Twitter account posted in response. “Alexander Vindman broke the chain of command and leaked the contents of the President’s July 25th phone call to his pal, the “whistleblower.”...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Monday became the first Republican senator to state that he would like John Bolton, former White House national security advisor, to testify at the Senate impeachment trial if subpoenaed. “I would like to be able to hear from John Bolton. What the process is to make that happen, I don’t have an answer for you,” Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked whether he would be open to hearing from Bolton.

    `Please go to @ChickfilA and give them a piece of your chicken-pluckin' mind. It's claimed their "followers" dropped by 10%, or 110,000 over the past 4 weeks. (I think in general, stats about Twitter followers are highly manipulable and highly suspect, but let's just go with that.) Anyhow, I have been sending them lots of messages about how bad they are for selling out to the bullies in the LGBT activist organizations. They are getting beat up by angryy conservative (ex)customers, especially for dropping Salvation Army, an act of foul treachery. As of now, I think their customer comment tweets...

    It was unanimous. The House Freedom Caucus formally condemned Rep. Justin Amash's (R-MI) recent call to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump at a Monday meeting. Having read the Robert Mueller report in its entirety, Amash tweeted over the weekend that there were enough questions in there to suggest Trump obstructed justice and engaged in " impeachable conduct ." “It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after the Freedom Caucus voted on Amash's Twitter thread. They did not go so far as to vote him out of the conservative caucus,...

    A Michigan Republican and member of the House Freedom Caucus broke with his party Saturday in a rare series of tweetes accusing President Trump of "impeachable conduct." Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted Saturday that the president's actions to potentially obstruct the now-shuttered special counsel investigation warranted impeachment by the House, and accused Attorney General William Barr of "deliberately misrepresenting" Robert Mueller's report of the investigation's findings. "Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that he would rather see a Democrat win in 2020 than have President Trump elected to a second term. Flake made his comments at a debate in New York hosted by the nonprofit Intelligence Squared. Flake and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argued that the GOP should not renominate Trump, while Liz Peek and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach backed the president. Moderator John Donvan asked Flake if he would rather see Trump lose if he is the party's standard-bearer in 2020. "Are you willing to lose a cycle for...

    Twitter posts at link. Full title: WATCH: Michael Steele Thinks Trump Is 'Probably Not Happy' The FBI Stopped a Terrorist Attack Against Dems A few days ago, the FBI arrested U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, a self-identified white nationalist who wanted "focused violence” to “establish a white homeland." He made a list of targets, primarily Democratic lawmakers and liberal journalists and began researching ways to carry out the attack. Current MSNBC contributor and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele made some rather strange comments about the story, saying it was likely that President Trump was upset that...

    Days before he officially becomes a U.S. senator, Mitt Romney took to the Washington Post to fire a shot across President Trump’s bow, saying Mr. Trump had made a “deep descent” in December and is hurting the national character. In an op-ed column published online Tuesday evening, Mr. Romney, now a Republican senator-elect for Utah, came down hardest on recent moves in foreign policy and Cabinet positions related to that. “After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the...

    Tweets at link. Well, he’s been a pain in the rear end for months. He’s been a thorn in his party’s side during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination. Even as the GOP tries to confirm a slate of conservative judges to federal benches, he’s been insufferable. And why? On the latter issue, it was over Senate Republicans’ refusal to pass a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by the president. Yes, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has acted like your atypical Never Trump Republican. He has no base of support, no plan, no future, and so...
  • Justice Roberts’ attack against President Trump was blatantly political and wrong.

    Fox News ^ | 11/22/2018 | Joseph diGenova | Opinion
    In a remarkably inappropriate and blatantly political statement Wednesday, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts chastised President Trump for the president’s quite accurate criticism of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and its rogue district and appellate court judges. The spectacle of the ostensibly nonpolitical chief justice engaged in a dispute with the president of the United States is insulting to the Supreme Court and to our system of justice. Shame on the chief justice. What he did is unforgivable, especially after the corrosive Senate confirmation battle over now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was the subject of bitter and...

    Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. It’s less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,...

The global media company founder on Wednesday said he has registered as a Democrat, which would be especially significant if he decides to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. Bloomberg says on social media he did so “because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs.” …

    Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said she is ready “anytime, anyplace” to appear as a witness against President Trump, including a potential Senate impeachment trial. “I have the truth on my side as well as a hundred emails and documents and other things,” said Manigault Newman in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” released Friday, claiming she can testify about her knowledge of Russian ties to Trump’s campaign. Manigault Newman said that congressional committees have not yet reached out to her seeking testimony regarding information relevant to lawmaker probes into election interference and potential collusion with...

But....I, and millions of Americans are disgusted and completely turned off on Senator, John McCain. He certainly cannot be considered a hero when he openly bad mouths the loyal, dedicated, hard working, woman, Sarah Palen, his 2008 VP running mate, when he casts the one vote that allowed the failed Obamacare to continue living, when he refuses to resign his Senate position as he both is dying and leaving every citizen in Arizona without a workable "He cannot vote unless he...

    Former U.S. Rep. Charles Djou says he is leaving the Republican Party. Djou, in a column written for the online news site Civil Beat today, cited the party’s leadership under President Donald Trump as the main reason that led to his decision. Djou wrote,“Today after much consideration, I abandon my party because I am unwilling to abandon my principles. I can no longer stand with a Republican Party that is led by a man I firmly believe is taking the party of Lincoln in a direction I fundamentally disagree with, and a party that is unwilling to stand up to...

    Former president George W. Bush said he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, departing from President Trump, who has been skeptical of intelligence agencies’ findings that the Kremlin had interfered to help him win. “There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled. Whether they affected the outcome is another question,” the 43rd president said at a summit in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. He added: “It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.” Bush has been critical of Russia, slamming it for working...
