    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real affliction that plagues many in the liberal media and many in the anti-Trump crowd. During an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, David Frum, a faux Republican and editor for the left-leaning Atlantic, showed off how advanced his TDS was when he decried President Trump ahead of the historic North Korea summit as a cruel “punishment” against the American people for being irresponsible and hating the news media. CNN host Brian Stelter originally asked Frum to comment on President Trump’s criticism of CNN while at the press conference at the G7 summit...

    Exclusive – Melania Trump Spox: David Frum ‘Disgusting’ for Insinuating Domestic Abuse in White House(FULL TITLE) First Lady Melania Trump’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham condemned a “disgusting” Monday tweet from Atlantic Senior Editor David Frum containing a hypothetical situation with President Donald Trump hitting his wife. Frum went after President Trump, his personal attorney Jay Sekulow, and now former Trump attorney John Dowd in a tweet that asked whether Trump would be obstructing justice if he punched the First Lady and ordered the Secret Service to cover up the assault. “Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White...

    A Rolling Stone writer speculated on Twitter that First Lady Melania Trump could be the victim of spousal abuse by President Donald Trump, hence her recent public absence. Melania Trump has not made a public appearance since a five-day hospital stay in mid-May following surgery for a kidney condition. She will not travel with the president for the G7 summit in Quebec this week, and there are also no plans for her to join him in Singapore for his June 12 meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10,...

    The anti-Trump opposition to President Donald Trump has gotten so loony that even Never Trumper David Frum is now worried that their crazed rantings will undermine the case against Trump. The senior editor of The Atlantic expressed his concerns in that periodical today with The Anti-Trump Recoil Goes Too Far:

    RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, I want to go back to Friday on this program, because the CNN story is that we were talking about for much of the last two hours of the program, we didn’t learn the full scope of what had happened until after the program was over. So let’s go back and let us relive that moment on Friday when we learned that CNN was reporting that the Trump administration had been offered WikiLeaks data about 10 days before it was posted on WikiLeaks. CNN claimed to have an exclusive, and they reported it breathlessly, and...

    David Frum, former President George W. Bush speechwriter, appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter today to discuss media in the age of Trump.The current Atlantic senior editor started off his monologue by making the following claim.  “The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media. Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them because what they are offering is a closed system of ideology and propaganda," Frum told Stelter.  On the surface, this sounds accurate. Astronomers...
  • Hah! Democrat and Liberal Media’s Latest Motto: We Lost But We’re Really Winning

    12/10/2017 9:03:34 AM PST · by davikkm · 16 replies
    Democrats and the liberal media have already conceded Alabama to Judge Roy Moore. After hurling every smear and vicious attack EVER at the Alabama Judge they see they are still going to lose. Alabama voters DON’T TRUST DEMOCRATS OR THEIR LIBERAL MEDIA! Why should they? When was the last time the Washington Post or ANY liberal media outlet published a positive piece on Alabama? 30 years ago? 50 years ago? Judge Roy Moore pulled ahead of his very liberal opponent Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate special election. Moore now leads Jones 49-45 in the Real Clear Politics averages.

    Does anyone believe that the fake ABC and CNN hit pieces on Trump were the result of overzealous fairness? If it weren’t so outrageous, this would be funny . . . On Brian Stelter’s CNN show this morning, during a discussion of the spate of MSM misreporting of stories in a way unfavorable to President Trump, guest David Frum actually said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, frequent MSNBC Republican guest David Frum lamented over the trend towards loosening gun laws -- even after high-profile mass shootings -- and then predicted that it would be necessary to convince gun owners that "you're a bad parent if you have a gun in the house" to get the public to support more gun restrictions. After Frum had spent time lamenting that since the Newtown school shootings in 2012, there have been a loosening of gun laws in many states, host O'Donnell followed up by suggesting that most Americans agree with a...

    CBS’s Face the Nation led off 2017 with a political panel where everyone was completely disgusted by President-elect Trump. The two Bush White House veterans – speechwriters Michael Gerson and David Frum – talked in dark terms about an election stolen by Russia and a forthcoming “constitutional crisis.” On the Left were Jeffrey Goldberg, the Obama-polishing editor of The Atlantic magazine, and former NPR anchor Michele Norris, who left the taxpayer-funded network when her husband took a job in the Obama White House. Norris declared that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan clearly had a racial component, since America was...

    Five Questions About Russia's Election Hacking As the culpability of Putin’s government becomes more clear, a host of other issues remain unresolved. David Frum The evidence to support the CIA’s conclusion that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump remains mostly secret. But the outline of the case is no mystery. Both Democratic and Republican Party servers were reportedly hacked by foreign agents, yet the Moscow-friendly folks at Wikileaks somehow only obtained the contents of Democratic servers. Meanwhile, Donald Trump ran a campaign that sometimes seemed almost designed to please Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump lavishly praised...

    But (Hillary Clinton) is a patriot. She will uphold the sovereignty and independence of the United States. She will defend allies. She will execute the laws with reasonable impartiality. She may bend some rules for her own and her supporters’ advantage. She will not outright defy legality altogether. Above all, she can govern herself; the first indispensable qualification for governing others. So I will vote for the candidate who rejects my preferences and offends my opinions. (In fact, I already have voted for her.)

    Former Bush Regime Official Predicts Coming Stalinist Blood Purge of Trump Supporters October 29, 2016| by Donn Marten A former speechwriter for President George W. Bush has made a chilling prediction that conjures up images of Stalinist Russia. David Frum who helped to coin the slogan “Axis of Evil” has openly stated that once the election is over that Trump supporters will be subjected to harsh “recriminations” that begin with exile from the Republican party and end up in very dark territory. The calls for punishment of those who are putting America first and exercising their right to participate in...

    White Middle Americans express heavy mistrust of every institution in American society: not only government, but corporations, unions, even the political party they typically vote for—the Republican Party of Romney, Ryan, and McConnell, which they despise as a sad crew of weaklings and sellouts... And when Donald Trump came along, they were the people who told the pollsters, “That’s my guy.” They aren’t necessarily superconservative. They often don’t think in ideological terms at all. But they do strongly feel that life in this country used to be better for people like them—and they want that older country back. ...People like...

    Robert Novak wrote Prince of Darkness (according to his publicity materials) to vindicate himself and to settle scores. Among those scores are one with former diplomat Joe Wilson, and another with me. Even from Novak’s own point of view, however, it would have been better if he had left those scores unsettled and this book unpublished. I am not sure I have ever read a memoir that so artlessly presents so damning a self-portrait. The title is unintentionally unironic: The man revealed in these pages is indeed a dark soul. I’ll leave my own part in this story to the...

    Here’s another demonstration, says David Frum, that Bush is never more passionate than when he’s talking about immigration and biculturalism. The Trump/Bush debate over whether it’s appropriate to address Latino voters in Spanish is like the Christie/Paul argument over the NSA and civil liberties: Each man’s position on the issue speaks directly to what it is his fans like most about him. Trump’s the guy who’s demanding assimilation, Jeb’s more comfortable with multiculturalism, at least as Spanish speakers transition to their new culture. He also says Trump “doesn’t believe in tolerance,” which means … what, exactly? If cracking down...

    When the proceeds of growth are not widely shared, the consensus in favor of pro-growth measures cracks. A decade and a half ago, I filled my days writing speeches urging Congress to grant President George W. Bush fast-track trade authority. If memory serves, I wrote more speeches on that one subject than on any other. Obviously, I didn’t earn my pay: Despite Republican majorities in both Houses, Congress balked. This past year, President Obama has worked as hard for fast-track authority as President Bush ever did. It now seems that his efforts will prove as unavailing. This time, if anything,...
