  • Mark Meadows: Ryan, McConnell ‘Can Probably Keep Their Jobs’ if They Execute

    From The Hill: House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), who was close to Trump during the 2016 campaign, is warning that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and McConnell could lose their jobs if they fall short on tax reform and funding the U.S.-Mexico border wall. “Bottom line: if Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can get the president’s agenda done, they can probably keep their jobs,” Meadows said in an interview. “If Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can’t get the president’s agenda done, I don’t know that they get to keep theirs, nor do I know if I get to keep...

    Nine percent. This same poll from PPP has Vladimir Putin’s favorable rating among Americans at 11 percent. McConnell’s less popular than Putin, than war, than famine — than even a Republican health-care bill. This makes three gruesome polls for McConnell in as many days. A poll of Kentucky published Monday, also by PPP, had him at 18 percent in his home state. A survey conducted by former Trump campaign pollster Tony Fabrizio released yesterday put him at 27/44 nationally, down 25 net points since June. Now here’s PPP with a new national number so unspeakably awful it can’t possibly be...

    'Lou Dobbs Tonight' most-watched business news show of the year © Fox Business Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" marked one straight year as the most-watched program in business news this week, according to Nielsen Media Research. The show, hosted by staunch President Trump supporter Lou Dobbs, averaged 285,000 total viewers, making it the highest-rated program over other business networks including rival CNBC. Trump thanked Dobbs via Twitter last month for supporting his agenda and giving him an "A+" grade on the performance of his first six months in office. "Thank you to [Lou Dobbs] for giving the first six...

    As it happens, we have some sense of how he might react to spontaneous racially tinged violence because after defeat and reconciliation, he became a college president of what is now Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. This put him in charge of restless males during their years of peak testosterone, and at a politically charged historical moment, to boot. While he was a college president, a number of his students were involved in altercations with African-Americans in a nearby town. Once, an African-American shot and nearly killed a student. The students, nearly all veterans, talked of lynching. Lee...

    t’s not just the VA where we’re having trouble cutting out the deadwood, however. This report from the Washington Post has at least one real eye opener in it. The head of the Treasury has been made aware of problems at the Patent and Trademark Office. Over there, a number of workers were found to be falsifying their time reporting, billing the government for hundreds of thousands of dollars for time not worked. In some of the most severe cases, workers put in two hours of time, then had the audacity to charge the government for a full day plus...

    Chicago (AFP) – The operator of a controversial US oil pipeline, which was the focus of months of protests by Native American tribes, on Tuesday sued several environmental groups, claiming they spread false information and incite violence. Energy Transfer Partners launched broad accusations against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, alleging racketeering, defamation and inciting violence that amounted to “eco-terrorism” among other charges, for actions taken against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Greenpeace rejected the claims, saying they amounted to “harassment by corporate bullies.” The $3.8-billion, 1,172-mile (1,886-kilometer) oil pipeline was the focus of months-long protests in 2016 by dozens of North...

    The Hill ^ | August 22,2017 | Jonathan Easley -
    Political leaders and law enforcement officials in Arizona are on high alert ahead of President Trump’s campaign rally Tuesday night in Phoenix. The big question is whether there will be more supporters of Trump inside the Phoenix Convention Center, which holds 29,000, or protestors outside. Trump’s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., has become the biggest controversy to date of his presidency. The Phoenix rally, as a result, has become an opportunity for Trump’s opponents to show their force. Some GOP leaders, such as Gov. Doug Ducey, are steering clear of the rally entirely....

    Bannon’s remarks, made to the NeverTrumpers at Weekly Standard, reminded me why Trump won the Republican nomination and the general election in 2016. The reason that Donald Trump won the Republican nomination was that he stood up for ordinary Republican voters that liberals routinely name and shame as racists, sexists, and homophobes. That’s why he beat out Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the GOP squishes. Ordinary middle-class Republicans know that, at any moment, they could be accused of racism by some SJW at work and lose their job. They are afraid; they want a president who will stand up for them....
  • Poll: Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky Approval Rating Plummets to 18 Percent (Trump 60 in KY)

    The approval rating of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has plummeted to just 18 percent, a survey from Public Policy Polling has found. The poll, which surveyed 645 Kentucky voters, found that just 18 percent of respondents approved of McConnell’s current performance, compared to 74 percent who disapproved. Seven percent of people said they were not sure. McConnell, who is the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Kentucky history, having represented the state since 1984, was recently criticized by President Trump for failing to pass the healthcare reform bill through the Senate. “Can you believe that Mitch McConnell who has screamed...

    The U.S. Navy announced an “operational pause” and has begun a broad investigation after the destroyer USS John S. McCain collided with a merchant vessel, leaving 10 sailors still missing, the second such incident in as many months. The response by the U.S. military signals the Navy believes it needs to examine whether there may be institutional problems behind the deadly collisions. Navy Adm. John Richardson, the chief of naval operations, made the announcement about the operational pause during a nearly four-minute video message posted on Facebook Monday morning. Adm. Richardson said he also ordered a broader investigation. “I directed...

    Many Americans are eagerly watching the devolution of traditional news with relish because they agree with the prevailing narratives, whether based on true facts or imagined fiction. But others are growing skeptical of nearly every news item they see or read. Some have stopped consuming news altogether. That serves the goal of the interests that are pulling our strings. It’s in the PR playbook. If they can do nothing more than confuse an issue, they’ve accomplished their mission. They throw so much information into the mix that ordinary people disregard all of it, including the truth that would have damaged...

    The Democratic Party's remaining strength is in large urban areas. In the 2016 presidential election, the Democrats carried fewer than 500 counties, almost all of them urban, out of a total some 3,100 counties nationwide. The Democrats must hold onto this urban support, or the party will collapse. Therefore, President Trump's announced intention to improve life in America's cities is an existential threat to the Democratic Party. If President Trump succeeds in bringing jobs, safety, education, and prosperity to America's inner cities, the Democrats would lose their last strongholds of support. The Democrats are resisting, as they must. The Democratic...

    At the University of Southern California, activists have pointed out that the horse that the school’s Trojan mascot rides around the football stadium on has almost the same name as Robert E. Lee’s horse! The Los Angeles Times reports: When Richard Saukko galloped his chalk-white Arabian horse named Traveler around the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum almost 56 years ago, it was supposed to be a one-time stunt. Instead, the brief performance before USC kicked off its season against Georgia Tech turned into one of college football’s iconic traditions. A succession of white horses named Traveler have followed — Traveler IX...

    Wal-Mart Applies for Patent for Blimp-Style Floating Warehouse An unmanned airborne warehouse -- laden with drones -- could help retailers lower the costs of fulfilling online orders, particularly the so-called “last mile” to a customer’s house, which is usually handled by a local or national logistics company. To avoid that expense, Wal-Mart and other retailers often encourage shoppers to pick up those orders at the store, where they might grab a few additional items. Earlier this week, Target Corp. agreed to acquire a software company that coordinates local deliveries. “The core challenge of traffic and driving distance in any major...

    The AP’s fear is that Democrats’ obsession with President Trump will prevent them from communicating a positive agenda to voters: Trump upset Democrat Hillary Clinton on the strength of his support from white voters, particularly working-class whites who possessed a combination of economic frustration and racial resentments salved by Trump’s promises of immigration controls, law-and-order and a booming economy. Clinton, meanwhile, concentrated so much on Trump’s deficiencies and outlandish statements that her own policy proposals received less attention. That’s a problem that has beset Trump rivals since he first declared his candidacy: All the attention focused on Trump — even...

    In truth, she didn’t — her party did. The Democratic Party has suffered broadly in the middle of the country in the last few years, largely on the backs of its pull left under the presidency of Barack Obama. Though progressivism fit well for Democrats in urban areas, it fell flat and was widely rejected in places like Madison County. It is not that voters liked or loved Republicans or found them more virtuous; it is that they found Democrats less aligned with their values, more likely to look down their noses at them, and not at all interested in...

    MSNBC’s ultra liberal Chris Matthews actually called out Antifa violence and questioned who they are what it is that they stand for exactly (finally). Lecia Brooks, of the Southern Poverty Law Center fought back claiming masked Antifa members “take a principled stand to stand against white supremacists wherever they may show up.” What she really means is that if you are a Trump supporter, you are a white supremacist. “I know their name is anti-fascist. Do they only go after fascists or anybody, say, in the global economic community they don’t like? Matthews began. “No. They are strictly anti-fascists. They...
