    Hat Tip: Kevin Collins Thought you’d like to be informed, since the media won’t let you know... The White House....short report..... it's called ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ - as titled by Rush Limbaugh. Nothing Trump does - to the good - will ever make it on the national news. The media have their agenda and they're going to stick with it, no matter what. On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report also said that Trump...

    Laurel or Yanny? If you are scratching your head over that question then you probably haven't been on the Web for the past few days. During that time, a viral audio clip has been featured in which a listener will hear either "Laurel" or "Yanny." Two very different sounding words. Well, the White House entered this controversy with an amusing video featuring staffers who heard one or the other word. They also tweeted out the video and not unsurprisingly it triggered an angry reaction from liberals as we shall see.
  • Kellyanne Conway Tells Fox & Friends Some WH Leakers Are Senior Officials (personnel changes coming)

    Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has been vocal in denouncing White House leakers over the past few days — following the controversy over the comments made by aide Kelly Sadler about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in a closed-door meeting. Conway has told Martha MacCallum that she expects the leaks will result in personnel changes. And now, Conway says she’s getting close to identifying those responsible. Thursday on the Fox & Friends morning program, guest host Abby Huntsman asked Conway if she’s pinpointed the leakers. “Somewhat, yes,” Conway said. The White House counselor went on to say that some higher-ups...

    In a wide ranging 15 minute interview, Joe DiGenova, attorney for President Trump, reveals that everybody knows who the spy in the White house is. Gave the initials "S.M." and some background. DiGenova says the Russia collusion angle is dead and so Mueller lacks basis for a subpoena of the President. Discusses possible avenues for Judge Ellis' ruling coming up late this week regarding Paul Manafort. Hints that Rosenstein may be fired soon.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Republican has urged the White House to speak out against an aide who mocked Senator John McCain’s brain cancer during an internal meeting, but stopped short of calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to apologize. South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a close friend of McCain, told CBS’s “Face the Nation” program in an interview to be aired on Sunday that he was not satisfied with the White House’s response to the controversy surrounding Kelly Sadler, a communications aid. “It’s (a) pretty disgusting thing to say, if it was a joke, it was a terrible...

    The barking and braying of the barnyard baboons in the elite media will continue until they are Trumped again. Exactly how and why they seem to be surprised by a President who is doing precisely what he promised to do remains a curiosity to me. They are shocked that this brute in the White House would actually pull out of the clever deal that the very smart and urbane Obama team carefully crafted with the Mullahs in Iran. Perhaps confronting the reality that the final threads of the Obama legacy are unraveling is just too much for them. It...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham would like to see the White House apologize for a "disgusting" joke that was made about the health of his friend, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer. Last week, a White House press aide, Kelly Sadler, joked to colleagues during a closed-door meeting mocked McCain’s health after he called for his Senate colleagues to reject Gina Haspel’s nomination for CIA director. “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler said. Graham, R-S.C., said if this was in fact a joke, "it was a terrible joke." "I just wish somebody from the White House would tell...

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Friday to a barrage of questions regarding Special Assistant to the President Kelly Sadler joking about Sen. John McCain’s death in an internal meeting which was leaked to the press. A reporter asked Sanders if Sadler still had a job. “I’m not going to comment on an internal staff meeting,” she replied. Another reporter pressed Sanders on the remarks and whether the White House planned to address them. “I’m not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other,” Sanders said. She did later confirm...

    As part of National Security Adviser John Bolton's full overhaul of the National Security Council, he's "leading the push to abolish the role of special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator," the top White House cybersecurity job, Politico reports, citing one current and two former U.S. officials. One of the former officials said there's a "60-40" chance the White House eliminates the job, potentially leaving the U.S. government rudderless heading into elections in which Russia is widely expected to meddle.

    Earlier today President Trump announced the United States is leaving the "defective" and "terrible" Iran deal. Former President Obama, who signed the deal in 2015 after it was rejected as a treaty by Congress, isn't happy about it.  There are few issues more important to the security of the US than the potential spread of nuclear weapons or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East. Today’s decision to put the JCPOA at risk is a serious mistake. My full statement:— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 8, 2018 A long lecture has been posted on Obama's Facebook page,...

    Another week has gone by in which the media covering the president of the United States has committed reckless malpractice more disgraceful than usual. Last Friday, President Trump hosted athletes from the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics at the White House. For 20 minutes he celebrated their accomplishments, often calling them to the podium and joking with them. It was a ceremony of pure goodwill, and the president, as any good hotelier would, made sure each one had a memorable experience. When he brought the gold medalists from the curling team up to the podium to great applause, one of...

    Vice President Mike Pence's physician, Dr. Jen Pena, resigned Friday following the failure of President Trump's nomination of White House physician Ronny Jackson to become secretary of Veterans Affairs. “The vice president’s office was informed today by the White House Medical Unit of the resignation. Physicians assigned to the vice president report to the White House Medical Unit and thus any resignation would go entirely through the Medical Unit, not the vice president’s office,” Pence spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said. Pena had raised concerns about Jackson's conduct, which was reported this week. Trump nominated Jackson in April to take over the...

    From the article: In an interview with The Post, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giulani — who is now serving as Trump’s lead personal attorney dealing with the special counsel — said the president did not force Cobb to leave. “It was just time for him to go, but he’s still going to be available to us,” Giuliani said. He added that Jay Sekulow, another member of Trump’s legal team, “had the most to do with it.” “Jay felt he need someone that more aggressive,” Giuliani said. “That’s not a criticism of Ty, but it’s just about how we’re...

    Still, we should be eternally grateful to them for proving for once and for all how the journalistic elite will hide behind any ‘we-didn’t-know-that’ excuse when it comes to getting even with Donald Trump and staffers when it’s their big Dinner Night Don’t believe for a nano second that the ‘journalist’ elite were taken unaware by the vulgarity of ‘comedian’ Michelle Wolf at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ dinner. Not only is the filthy-mouthed Wolf mean-spirited and vulgar, she is blatantly advertised as such by the talent agency promoting her.

By now you've surely heard all about Wolf's Saturday night performance at the correspondents dinner in Washington, D.C. All sorts of critics have weighed in. There's been a backlash and a backlash TO the backlash, with supporters defending Wolf's controversial jokes. Wolf's interview with Gross is her first in-depth response to all the hemming and hawing. In the interview, airing on Tuesday's "Fresh Air" radio broadcast, Wolf said "I...

    A tree taken from a World War I battlefield in France and planted during French President Emmanuel Macron’s state visit last week has disappeared from the White House lawn. President Donald Trump, Macron, his wife Brigitte and Melania Trump all posed for photo ops on the south portion of the White House lawn last Monday as they used shovels to unearth a setting for the sapling. The gifted sessile oak tree originated from the site of the Battle of Belleau Wood in Belleau, France, in which American, French and other allied troops fought the Germans during World War One. But...

Some of his best was his joke about Alan Greenspan' s wedding to Andrea Mitchell, President Bill Clinton's parking spot, Martha Stewart fish bone birdhouse, and Larry King's table waitress joke was also brilliant.

"Real news is sometimes happy, heart-warming, or heart-breaking and critical or makes you angry. But we reject efforts — be it anyone, especially our elected officials — to undermine journalism as un-American," Talev said.
