    There exists a common narrative amongst political talking heads regarding President Donald Trump’s base of support: as his approval ratings plummet to new lows on a daily basis, his core supporters remain defiantly by his side. Nate Silver seeks to put an end to that apparent misconception in a new report for FiveThirtyEight, pointing to an erosion of Trump’s “strong support”: There exists a common narrative amongst political talking heads regarding President Donald Trump’s base of support: as his approval ratings plummet to new lows on a daily basis, his core supporters remain defiantly by his side.

    Washington (CNN) — Then-President Barack Obama warned President-elect Donald Trump in November against hiring retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as his national security adviser, former Obama administration officials confirmed to CNN. Obama warned Trump about Flynn during their Oval Office meeting on November 10, days after Trump was elected president. Obama's concerns, which he relayed to Trump, were not related to the firing of Flynn from the Defense Intelligence Agency but rather in the course of the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election. "Flynn's name kept popping up," according to a senior Obama administration source.

    We already know that Donald Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell is a DC insider. She was photographed with Barack Obama’s closest advisor Valerie Jarrett. She has also been captured with Huma Abedin at two different social functions that took place over four years apart. It’s now been learned that Powell is also quite comfortable around Hillary Clinton’s senior advisor and political hit man Philippe Reines. Described as Hillary’s “attack dog”, Reines likely held the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications at the time he was photographed with Powell.

    Think the Left is antiwar? Think again. A Democratic congresswoman is under fire from liberal movers and shakers for daring to question both the rationale for and the legality of Republican President Donald Trump’s recent missile strike in Syria.Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), shown, has been one of the most outspoken critics of the incursion. The day of the attack, she issued a scathing press release calling it an “illegal regime change war” that is “short-sighted” and “could lead to nuclear war” with Russia. She also expressed skepticism over Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged responsibility for a chemical-weapons attack in northwestern...

    I learned a long time ago that when you are close to the truth the opposition, if there is any, springs into action and launches a desperate counter attack. That appears to define what happened in the wake of Fox News suspending Judge Andrew Napolitano for the following claim: that former US President Barack Obama asked British intelligence agency GCHQ to monitor President Donald Trump. . . . Andrew Napolitano, a political commentator and former New Jersey judge, said on Tuesday Obama used GCHQ in order to "make sure there were no American fingerprints." "Three intelligence sources have informed Fox...
  • Freedom Caucus drives dagger into heart of young Trump Presidency

    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...

    The Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—finally came up for a final vote in the House. First put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan in 2009, it offered few surprises to Republicans. And the effort itself was very familiar, as Republicans had voted over 60 times to repeal Obamacare since its passage eight years ago. Yet, when the time came to exercise the prerogative of the majority and finally repeal and replace President Obama’s deeply flawed social program, Republicans came up short. Over the past two weeks, moderate Republicans argued that they could not vote for...

    President Trump is sticking with his argument that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 presidential election, amid calls for him to provide proof and questions about whether he’ll indeed have an official probe into the issue. “Many people have come out and said I am right,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly to be aired Sunday before the NFL Super Bowl. [......] Trump also said in the Fox interview that he has "respect" for Russian President Vladimir Putin, but that respect does not mean they'll get along. "I say it’s better to get along...

    I'm not trying to be a downer, just realistic. If HRC does become president, I would be willing to march on DC, take part in protests, picket or something active. I wondered if others felt the same and if they have a plan of action. Send me a PM of information to read or how to become active in such a protest.

    Just got done communicating with the folks at PPD poll. They too show a drop in Trump support today, almost exclusively the result of a decrease in voter intensity for Trump. That is, the media is creating a self fulfilling prophecy amongst Trump supporters. I see it here every day with the defeatest posts, the incessant whining over this or that. It's time to cut the defeatism and do whatever we can above and beyond what we are already doing to bring Trump home. This place has been a depressing forum the last weekend. So think twice about your defeatism...

    Why doesn't Trump emphasize how Clinton is supporting ISIS in Syria? Why doesn't he discuss how Russian/American relations will sour under Clinton and thrive under Trump? Clinton and the US has the wrong policy in Syria. I support the Russian bombing of rebels. I oppose the American support of the rebels. Trump agrees with me. Why doesn't he get the American people on board?

    Hillary Clinton has vastly outspent Donald J. Trump on TV ads in Florida. Her 57 campaign offices dwarf Mr. Trump’s afterthought of a ground game. And Mr. Trump is deeply unpopular among Hispanics, who account for nearly one in five Florida voters. Despite these advantages, Mrs. Clinton is struggling in the Sunshine State, unable to assemble the coalition that gave Barack Obama two victories here, and offering Mr. Trump a broad opening in a road to the White House that not long ago seemed closed to him. Mr. Trump is pressing down hard to win the state, campaigning in Miami...

    The Trump campaign built a large policy shop in Washington that has now largely melted away because of neglect, mismanagement and promises of pay that were never honored. Many of the team’s former members say the campaign leadership never took the Washington office seriously and let it wither away after squeezing it dry. Donald Trump often brags about having experts and senior former officials advising him. Wednesday night in a forum on national security, he said, “We have admirals, we have generals, we have colonels. We have a lot of people that I respect.” It’s true that Trump is getting...

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Chuck Todd, the moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” quipped that “anti-intellectualism” had taken over the Republican Party. (snip) “Anti-intellectualism,” Todd said, “that’s what’s taken over the party. It’s almost this, you know, there’s almost this disdain with some in Trump world that are like, ‘Yeah OK, so the college educated crowd isn’t for it. There’s almost a disdain that they’re embracing about this. But it is hurting the party. It’s going to hurt the party down the road.”

    At least two senior Donald Trump aides were fired by the campaign Monday in what three sources described as a shakeup. Both aides — Ed Brookover and Jimmy Stracner — had worked for the presidential campaign of former Trump rival Ben Carson, who endorsed Trump after dropping out of the race. Brookover, a longtime GOP strategist, had been working as a political adviser. He played a role in helping to organize this month's GOP convention. Stracner, had been working as the Trump campaign’s western regional political director.
